A new collection of poetic works by the winner of the Pulitzer Prize, National Book Critics Circle Award, National Book Award, and other honors includes "The New Higher," a treatise on the impact of a relationship in the face of intangibility. By the author of A Wave and Some Trees. 17,500 first printing.


A masterful collection from “the grand old man of American poetry” (New York Times)

You meant more than life to me. I lived through

you not knowing, not knowing I was living.

I learned that you called for me. I came to where

you were living, up a stair. There was no one there.

No one to appreciate me. The legality of it

upset a chair. Many times to celebrate

we were called together and where

we had been there was nothing there,

nothing that is anywhere. We passed obliquely,

leaving no stare. When the sun was done muttering,

in an optimistic way, it was time to leave that there.
